Monroe and Main plus size fashion is Wowing Me!

I got my catalogue from Monroe and Main and Instantly fell in love with so many of their products that I immediately had to order a couple of things.


UPDATE:  I received my order in about 5 days and it was packed nicely with the return slip and an envelope of coupons.

The first thing I did was to take the items out to check for quality. The two items that I bought were extremely well made and I knew that I would get a lot of use out of them.

I’m a little heartbroken right now because I did something that I always advise my readers not to do:  I didn’t do my measurements according to their size chart. I just chose a 2X in both items.

When  I took out the crochet top, it was GORGEOUS! Well made and stunning.


Problem:  I’m only 5’1′ and this came down to the length of a dress for me. I tried working with it and even thought of having it altered because I loved it so much.  I just didn’t see how they could alter it without ruining it.

I then tried on the Trapeze dress and it was soooo cute. It’s even got a really nice light petticoat to it just to make it hang really well. It’s even cuter in person than in the catalogue. As cute as it was, I could barely get it over my bust.


So….I brought these problems on myself by being too lazy to do the work.

I definitely will be buying from them again as I am just so impressed with the shipping and the quality of the merchandise.

I will say, however, that these clothes are GORGEOUS and worth every cent. Note to self:  Read the sizing chart.



My impression is that Monroe and Main is an affordable luxe-looking online store with clothing that both teens and the more mature woman could wear.

I know they’ve been sending me catalogues for a while and I’ve probably set them aside thinking I would eventually look at it, which I never did.

This catalogue had the insert saying this was the last catalogue they would send me so, of course, I finally looked at it and fell in love, especially because right now they carry so much of my favorite color: coral.
